Since we were/are not in school for our 2nd October meeting and both November meetings, we have called a special meeting for the 2nd Tuesday of the month- 11/13, before school.

The event will take place on Saturday, November 17th from 8am-3:30pm at 4037 Austell Powder Springs Rd SW, Powder Springs, GA 30127. The goal of the Thanksgiving Day Event is to feed 600 hundred needy families in and around the Powder Springs Community. We will also provide breakfast that morning. We are in need of donations of breakfast items, such as breakfast casseroles, grits, orange juice, and apple juice. We also need monetary donations. Please give donations to Ms. Frost or Mr. Shannon. Please bring items to Reflections on Saturday morning by 8 AM.
November 29– Relay for Life Dress Down Day
December 8– Shop With An Indian at McEachern, 8 AM-2PM
Shop with an Indian is a community outreach program organized by the McEachern Beta Club. McEachern students sponsor students from the elementary schools in our feeder program. Each Elementary shopper will also receive $100 to spend at Walmart with his or her assigned team of high school shoppers. Tapp Beta students will stay at McEachern and assist Elementary students with wrapping gifts, create and run holiday games for the Elementary students, and organize and lead holiday crafts for the Elementary students. This may include face painting, nail painting, games, coloring, cookie decorating, and ornament making.
In addition to the above events, we are supporting Men of Tapp in their Service efforts with these projects:
- In conjunction with the 11 Alive Can-A-Thon Event, we will be collecting canned goods starting Wednesday, November 7th – November 29th. Our goal is 1,000 canned goods. Please place the collected canned goods in the box in your Grade Level TPA.
- We are partnering with the Powder Springs Police Department again this year to assist with their “Cops with Beards” Holiday Fundraiser. The funds collected will be used to adopt 3-4 families in OUR community for the Holiday. We are asking staff, students, and parents to donate change to assist in this worthy endeavor. Students will collect “change for a change” at the Tiger Pole one-two mornings per week starting November 8th – December 4th. The goal is $300+. Please help so that we can exceed our goal and bring much needed joy to these families during the Holidays.
- We are also partnering with the non-profit organization On My Mother’s Shoulders to provide toiletry items to our school community and homeless college students. We are in need of the following items: soap, wash cloths, toilet paper, toothbrushes, toothpaste, lotion, Q-tips, deodorant, feminine products, wipes, laundry detergent, dishwashing detergent, fabric softener, dryer sheets, and hand sanitizer. Although this SERVE activity will be ongoing throughout the school year, we want to make a “STRONG” showing during the Holidays. Please place the collected items in the On My Mother’s Shoulders box in your Grade Level TPA.
